[2. Tara Radiant White Moon] "Pacifying the suffering of Samsara and granting pure happiness, manifestation of the victory over the darkness of the two obscurations, possess a face [like] the waxing moon with limitless kindness, Victorious Mother, exalted one you are the permanent refuge."

སྐད་ཅིག་ཙམ་ཞིག་ཡིད་མཁར་ཤར་བས་ཀྱང་། བསམ་པའི་དོན་ཀུན་ཡིད་བཞིན་སྟེར་བའི་མཐུ། གང་ལ་མངའ་བ་གསེར་མདོག་མཚན་དཔེའི་བྱིན། རྒྱས་པའི་སྣང་བ་མཆོག་གིས་མཚོན་པ་བཞིན།
